Dr Jockers Comments: 

If you like superfood based deserts you will love this.  It is low-carb and ketogenic and makes about 8-10 snowballs.  Chia seeds are loaded with healthy fiber, antioxidants, clean protein and omega 3 fatty acids.

Coconut is loaded with small and medium chain saturated fats that boost fat burning and enhance brain function.  Raw cacao is loaded with powerful antioxidants that improve our mood and enhance our quality of life.

This is energy fuel that the whole family will enjoy!  Many of my clients love this recipe around holiday time as the name implies, it kind of represents winter time very well.  However, these are a great snack or dessert you can have all year round.  Try out these sugar free snowballs and let us know how you like it with a comment below.

  1. HI! I’m just about to make them. I’m making them for a very sweet elderly couple. Do they really need pink salt?

  2. I just wish you would put more Ketogenic . Recipes for people that cancer. The ones you put up look great but I can’t have honey and the stevia does not sweet the caca power like honey. I only get 12 gr. carbs. 84gr proteins . 157gr. of Fat …So something sweet every once in while be great even if I had to give my carb up for the day. Thanks Dr. Jocker Ray Headley

  3. Just made them – Quick & easy.
    Very tasty 🙂 Thanks!
    For me next time i will use a tad less pink salt & use the 1/3 coconut oil so i can roll them easier.
    Will be a great snack / gift…
    Nice to make with kids…

    Almost like our traditional family tradition of Lammingtons 🙂

  4. I love them, but I added 2 tbsp of pure Canadian high grade maple syrup and another 1/2 tbsp of coconut flour then let them cool a bit in the fridge for easier rolling…enjoy!
